There are a ton of family-friendly events to enjoy in HoCo every October. We are hosting a few of our own. Comment below what activities and events you plan on attending this month.

Dads Only Poker Night

October 6th, cards fly at 6:00 PM

We’re meeting up at BJ’s house for a 10 person Texas holdem tournament. RSVP on Facebook or via email. Bring your poker face and  food & drinks to share. 

Home Depot Workshop

October 6th, 9:00 – 11:00 AM

This has become a monthly staple on the first Saturday of every month at the Columbia location. Come out and build a craft, get an apron & pin for completing the project. Pro tip: bring wipes because it usually involves painting. A group of 3-4 of our dads usually arrives right around 9. This can get crowded, so we go early.

Disc Golf with Dads

October 7th, 3:30 PM, Silver Creek DGC in Pikesville

Let’s get out and play some disc golf. We have some avid players to help newcomers and children. This is a great beginner course that is quiet and slow paced for families to enjoy. We’ll be grilling hot dogs in the park afterwards. 

Dads Night Out

October 11th, 5:30 PM, Crabtown USA

We head out for some downtime the 2nd Tuesday each month. This time we’re heading to a place to Crabtown where they serve seafood, beer, and have an old school arcade. Let the trash talk begin!

Fall Foliage Hike

October 20th, 9:00 AM, Patapsco State Park

Peek fall foliage is estimated to happen October 22nd. This should be a great time for a scenic walk through the park.

Dutch Wonderland Happy Hauntings

October 20, 2:00 PM, Lancaster, PA

A group of dads and their families are heading up for trick or treating through one of my favorite amusement parks for kids (roughly ages 3-12). Use promo code halloweenblog18 to save on their website.

Coding Open House with CodeNinjas

October 27th, 2:30 – 5:00 PM, CodeNinjas Ellicott City

We’re teaming up with CodeNinjas. They are hosting a coding open house event at their STEM center as a part of the statewide Maryland STEM Fest!
